There has been extensive research on the causes of crooked teeth, the benefits of early interceptive treatment, the positive effects of correcting muscle function and the effectiveness of myofunctional orthodontic treatment methods using Myobrace® appliances by Myofunctional Research Co. (MRC). Research has proven that crowded teeth, incorrect jaw development and other orthodontic problems are not caused by big teeth in small jaws or other hereditary factors. Mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, reverse swallowing and thumb sucking (known as incorrect myofunctional habits) are the real causes.

Many of these articles refer to the pre-orthodontic trainer, Trainer for Kids (T4K®), Trainer for Alignment (T4A®), and other appliances in The Trainer System. All of these appliances were designed by MRC, the creator of the Myobrace®, and are now categorised as Myobrace® appliances.

Some of the key published research regarding myofunctional orthodontics and treatment methods used by Myobrace® are listed below:
